MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #8


Want to join in? Check out Wife of a Sailor!


1. What is ONE thing you'd like civilians to understand about being a military family?


- That just because we are a military family does NOT mean we are rolling in dough! In other words, military families are not rich by any means. I keep coming across civilians who think that military personnel are making big bucks. We are not living P. Diddy, Paris Hilton nor Donald Trump lifestyles here people!

2. What is your favorite mistake?

- My husband ::big smile::

3. What indulgence could you give up for a year?

- Hmmmm. Let's see. I'm going to have to say coffee. I did it before so, I'm sure I could do it again.

4. If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?

- Interesting. I think I would be a hummingbird. It's fast and stealthy. And cute too!

5. What is one question you'd like to see asked in a future MFF?

- How about: How involved are you with your FRG?

i was going to say my husband too (great minds......) but then i didn't want to upset him by saying people thought he was a mistake lol

Yummy Mummy said...

Hummingbirds are so pretty! Great answers :)

My answer to the military is banking, "Have you ever seen anyone in the military on Forbes Top Money Makers (whatever it is called.). People are clueless when it comes to the military.

Brooke Ashley said...

I was stuck between a hummingbird and flimango and went flimango ;) I love your #1 - so TRUE!

Julie the Army Wife said...

Good question about the FRG :)

And ya really military doesn't make that much compared to how much they work and how long they are gone.

hmb said...

hummingbirds ARE super cute! And they're kind of rare so that makes them super special ;)

Mowenackie said...

Oh! A hummingbird! I wish I had thought of that for mine. I love hummingbirds!

Mrs. JPT said...

Aren't hummingbirds just the sweetest and cutest things ever?! We've seen a few come by our backyard but haven't seen them in a while. At our last base they were around all the time!

Thanks for stopping by everyone! I'm going to be heading over to everyone's post later today.

My husband TOLD me to put him down as my favorite mistake, lol. Of course I didn't listen. I've noticed too that people seem to think we're rolling in the dough. Okay so we're not living paycheck to paycheck anymore, but we're not exactly rich either. lol

USNchic said...

Is that really a common misconception? How could they think we are rich? Wouldn't everyone join the military if that were the case? It's not hard to get in! Sure, we have really good benefits, but they come with a high price tag. Deployments SUCK!

Good question for #5. I'm an FRG President! :)
